Hi all,

Short and to the point: I currently work with Across v5.7, but might need to use v6.0 also. Is it possible to install both in my laptop/desktop?

Thank you!

Not unless you use VMs Jul 21, 2015

Hi Andrea,

AFAIK you can only have one installed version of Across on your system at a time. If you install Across v6.0 over the top of v5.7 all of the libraries as well as the Across database structures will be updated automatically, and you will no longer be able to run v5.7.

Of course, if you have two PCs, you can run 2 different versions of Across, but not in parallel on the same machine.

However, there is a way of getting around this -- by using Virtual Machines. VMs are a lot of work to set up and configure, but can be very useful if your PC is VM-capable and you want to do the work. I myself use them for testing and experimentation.
